Oh Them Wetbacks

Let’s face it, Republicans are NOT against the presence of illegal immigrants, they just want to return to the good old days when them wetbacks tended to ranch products and then returned for a siesta in dear beloved Mexico. In the good old days, they never lingered long enough to have children who went to OUR schools and cost us money. Of course, during World War II about a million of those wetbacks were asked to come to America and tend to our crops while American soldiers were fighting overseas. Republican Congressman Don Young summed up his party’s stance on illegal immigrants. “My father had a ranch, we used to have 40-50 wetbacks  to pick tomatoes. It takes two people to pick the same tomatoes, we now have technology.” And, let’s make clear this technology does not have children.

Republican farmers much prefer a world in which they can have as many wetbacks as they want, just as long as once the crops are in, they fly back to Mexico and only return when the next crop has come in. Ah, the good old days when wetbacks knew their place in our capitalist scheme of things.
